"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $350,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the William King Regional Art Center."

(This amendment provides $350,000 from the general fund in the second year to the William King Regional Art Center to provide operating funds for the William King Arts Center. The Center plays a critical role in addressing the art component of the region's K-12 SOL's though its programs with the school systems. Funding would enable the program to continue at a cost less than individual school districts can provide.)
